KARACHI: According to media reports , the condition of ailing 17-year-old elephant Noor Jehan continues to worsen despite the efforts of the international animal welfare organisation Four Paws.
The zoo administration has also imposed a ban on the entry of non-technical staff, including the media, until the elephant’s condition improves.
The ban was imposed to prevent overcrowding, which can cause hindrance in work and distress to the elephant.
Four Paws has stated that they are heartbroken to see that Noor Jehan’s health is not improving, but they are continuing to work with the on-site team to ease her suffering.
Recently, a nine-member committee was formed by Dr Syed Saifur Rahman, Karachi’s Administrator, to take care of Noor Jehan, and the committee will submit suggestions and recommendations for the elephant’s treatment.
